's happened do we do the bilateral talks an how do you deal with putin? there is a lot of foreign policy. egypt. but also what's happening in new york. that's got to be at least alluded to. >> oh, my goodness. how about, please pass the salt? this fish is lovely and how's your summer going? i find it a little hard to imagine that either one of them would broach the topic of what's going on in new york. painful i think for the secretary of state and not dangerous for the president, but not necessarily -- he knows she doesn't want to talk about that. so i don't think either one of them is going to bring those up. i would venture to guess that the elephant or donkey in the room, her prospective possible almost-certain presidential race is also not going to be a topic of conversation. there are some things that just don't need mentioning. >> and you know what could be mentioned since they both have long experience is what to do about the fed and how will women, including hillary clinton, respond if he does not choose the first woman, the vice chair of the fed, janet yellin, to replace ben be

been stalled ever since president morsi was ousted. that is why the head of the eu foreign policy is here in town. she's holding meetings with both the interim government as well as military leaders as well as representatives from the anti-coup coalition. she's hoping to try to bridge the divide. right now the big concern is that the police and the military say they're going to break up that sit-in protest that has thousands of people in it every night. the concern is if these negotiations fail, the police and the military may feel they have the legal green light to break it up. that could mean more violence. there are those within the government, some notable figures within the government, to express great concern that they don't want to see police and the military to break up this process, the sit-in. they want to bring the muslim brotherhood back into the political process. that's what they think would be the best way for national reconciliation. >> all right, ayman. i know we'll bring our audience any developing news of this protest we're expecting. joining me now our tel aviv

book "foreign policy begins at home." and i call it provocative because you are someone, the president of the council on foreign relations. spent your entire life in the foreign policy establishment, the state department for several administrations. you're saying the most important foreign policy goal, is to fix everything right here. >> not a book i expected to write, george. but i wrote it for the reason you said. if we fix it here, restore the foundations of our economy, we'll have the capacity over the coming decades, to deal with all of the challenges in the world. if, however, we don't get it right, and restore traditional levels of economic growth, we will not have the resources we need to lead in the world. we will not be able to set an example to the world. >> and you lay out an ambitious agenda. more in education, no infrastructure. roads and bridges and mass transit. and we also have to deal with our debt, the same kinds of things talked about in washington every, single day. but it seems like the system is broken. >> national security has two sides. domestic policy and the

unclassified foreign- policy matters. it would have prohibited intelligence agencies from of a fewyone outside high-level officials available for background briefings, even on an unclassified basis. were intendedns to stop leaks. i am certainly against leaks as well. is clear to me they would have significantly encroach on the first amendment and led to a less well informed public debate on foreign policy and national security matters. these anti-leak provisions went through the committee ross s in secret and the bill was agreed to by a vote of 14-1. you probably get the sense that i opposed it. the bill then made its way to the senate floor. at the time, i and everybody else did not even know how bad and how flawed the bill was because, in the course of the committee's consideration, we could not talk to anybody on the outside. i knew it was flawed, taking away pension rights without due process. those things lead out at us. -- leaped out at us. once the bill came out, because you still have to pass a bill, it was even serrated by all concerned, regardless of political party, to the point whe

was that from 1946 to 1950, american foreign policy was actually rather incoherent. truman had announced the truman doctrine and 40 and 47 which most historians mark as the beginning of the cold war. and then the point of that, the threat that true man identified the response from unidentified was actually quite incoherent. american defenses were low and there was aimed the demobilization after world war ii. so it really took the korean war to create all the policies that we now see that is the permanent standing army, the huge defense budgets, the perception of the block and the idea that any communist victory anywhere is somehow a threat to american national security. all of that came about because of the curry in war and also because of the korean war there was a collision between government and defense industry. and so, the start of birth of the military-industrial complex that eisenhower leader warned the nation against in the military industrial 1861. for china the effect of the korean war was also a profound because the laws during the korean war we must remember that first china

is president obama relevant or is he a lame-duck? take a look at the president's foreign policy. says secretary of state john kerry can't have a real possibility that is not a probability the odds of success are long to say the least but we will say the administration is still relevant. so move this to the side of relevance. on the other hand, if the administration has managed to add to the chaos of libya, egypt, syria, and also with the prospect of the middle east process, put libya here. it is the indication he is a lame duck, egypt as well well, syria, this is not going to well and the fact of the matter is john mccain is not helping even as we speak tonight? domestically congress in the white house will need to raise the of philae limits over the next six months to avoid defaults of the downgraded the president is already making noises he needs to make a deal with republicans so is the relevant? it is an interesting question because the debt ceiling issue is of little ambiguous talking about the lame-duck status ramped up in april pushing for gun-control. of the debt ceiling, we will put it
